    When in fact they need to eat more to lose weight.

    Yep! I've helped a few friends and they're baffled when they ask me how to lose weight and I tell them "eat more". Everything in the body is in balance, if you starve yourself, the body down-regulates your metabolism while also triggering more fat storage.

    I like the broccoli comment earlier, don't put salt or butter on ______ and see how much you eat. You'll be amazed how it's hard to stuff your face when you're not hijacking your pallet with add-ons. Case in point: I destroyed a whole bag of sweet potato chips last night without even realizing it.

    I used to sell to food manufacturers and I was amazed at how much sorcery goes into the flavor profiles, ingredients, etc. of our food. And it's all designed to make us eat more and actually shut down the hormones (ghrelin/leptin) that should be released to tell us to stop eating.

    BINGO. This is so huge. Cutting out sugar (as well as dairy) has been night and day for me in a ton of ways. It's hard, because it's everywhere (even in vitamins) but it has caused an epidemic here in the US.

    Another sugar-related thing to cut out is sucralose, HFCS, etc. Worse than sugar, bc your body doesn't have any idea what to do with it. 100% gets stored. And it destroys your gut.

    Anyway, more on topic...I'm newer to wakeboarding - is stretching a lot beneficial?

    I've never been that flexible, wondering if focusing more on mobility will help keep my summer season long? Yoga? lol

    IMO stretching is beneficial to everything you do. Especially high impact activities like wakeboarding. Most people forget to stretch AFTER.

    Big fan of yoga. About 10-11 years ago, I picked up a yoga book written by Diamond Dallas Page. Itís a form of power yoga and controlled breathing. I donít get into the yoga culture/spiritual, but the poses are legit.

    https://www.diamonddallaspage.com/fitness-guru/

    I still do it to this day, I found about 5-6 weeks I achieved my maximum flexibility and that 1x per week after the beginners phase was all I needed to maintain.

    Yoga, compliments any sport, but the balance alone would translate directly to surfing.

    Flexibility and Balance were the two greatest gains. Even when I have gotten out of shape and fat, my flexibility and balance are still above average, itís due to muscle memory.

    I work with a guy from Mumbai and he is not too pleased with the American butchering of yoga lol. But he meditates for like a half hour every day after he showers and refuses to do yoga on the ship because it can only be done on the ground and ships float. Also, you canít do yoga if youíre not on the ground floor of a building apparently because youíre not connected to the earth or something like that.

    I also do time restricted eating, climbing and onewheeling really keeps me in shape all winter. Just snowboarded 4 days in Whistler, my legs held up..

    Chinese food sucks in general but yeah. I imagine it would be worse in China that it is here. That's pretty standard for nearly all "ethnic" foods. Tex-mex is better than actual Mexican food, pizza in Italy doesn't have sauce (wth), ect ect...

    You guys are smoking crack. All ethnic foods are far better in their countries of origin.
